• Mr. W. McPherson

    Welcome to Harnett County Early College! Our school is the most unique school in the Harnett County School System.  We are the first and only early college in Harnett County which allows students to earn a high school diploma as well as an Associate’s degree simultaneously at no cost to the student or their family.

    Students at Harnett County Early College will be encouraged to value learning, problem solve, become critical thinkers, develop analytical writing skills, and develop strong communication skills to help prepare them to become our future leaders.

    We are tasked to ensure that our students are safe, academically curious, and prepared to compete on a local, international and global platform.

    Harnett County Early College’s philosophy is based on rigor, relevance, relationships and respect for ourselves and others.

    Partnered with Central Carolina Community College; we are embarking on an exciting new year preparing our students for hard work and academic excellence in their chosen career pathways by bridging the gap between high school and college.

    Our faculty and staff are dedicated and qualified professionals and they will provide the necessary skills to make our students successful, we will also rely on parents and the community members to partner with us.

    I am excited to be the principal implementing Harnett County Early College and I will work tirelessly to make sure our students are amongst the best and brightest.
